DEIRA is an embodied agent with a highly modular design, supporting several domains such as real time virtual horse race commentary, robosoccer commentary and virtual storytelling. Domain-specific information is processed to have the agent act on emotion and produce a compelling report on the situation, using synthesized speech and facial expressions. This paper briefly describes the features of the agent.
